Installation is simple and straight forward. First,
we throw in two Celeron 366 Mhz processors with
a production date of 03/13/99.
looks impressive, but virtually useless for
the processors on top of the BP6 is piece of cake with
the ZIF (Zero Insertion Force) socket. Just put the
silicon on top of the socket and press the lever down
to secure the chip.
here, we can see the ZIF sockets and the levers. Littered
around the sockets are numerous 1500µF, 6.3V capacitors.
I always have this temptation to shake the capacitors
a bit to test their sturdiness, and yes, the BP6 passed
my 'Sturdiness Test'.
Celerons with default
after mounting the Celerons, the next task is to mount
the heatsinks on them. Now, snapping the heatsinks on
top of the processors are easy, but getting them out
is difficult. Once snapped on, you need to use a screwdriver
to ply them out if you ever need to do that. Tough job,
so do it right the first time.
Thermistor in the center
us take a look at the thermistor found in the center
of the socket. The BP6 features 3 thermistors for temperatures
readings of the two CPUs as well as ambient casing temperature.
from the thermistors. Yikes, 60 deg C!
